What Is Rudraksha Meditation?

Rudraksha mediation is a discipline that teaches people to control beliefs that come every second. If a rudraksha is worn by a person close to his heart it helps to control emotions and appear undefeated in most of the difficult conditions. By doing meditation regularly one can improve its physical fitness, stamina, strength, and stability of mind.

In mediation, fixing the mind on external or internal things is known as Dharana(focus). Externally the mind is fixed on the picture of lord Rama, lord Krishna, and lord Hari or any other point or object. Internally it can fixed on any part of the body or chakra, after having control over the Pratyahara(withdrawal of the senses) and Pranayama( breath technique) to control Prana & Indriyas. You should try to focus on your thoughts or breath technique.

There is only one Vritti (flow of awareness) or wave in the mind lake according to the Dharana. The mind believes in one thing at a time. All other operations of the mind are stopped. As per our yoga school, a yogi can stop his breathing by Kumbhaka(Holding the breath) for 20 minutes because he has a good dharana. He has a good calmness of mind. Pranayama destroys the Vikshepa(distraction), stable the mind, and enhances the power of focusing.

Rules To Wear Energized Rudraksha

There are many rules to energize the rudraksha beads, a few of them are:

  • For the first time when wearing a rudraksha bead, you must do the Pran prathistha(energize) of the rudraksha bead/mala from a Brahmin pandit in a Shiv temple. Make sure you follow the Vidhi of saying the mantras as provided in our religious books.
  • Whenever you wear the rudraksha bead(after its pooja), say a minimum of 3 times or 11 times the “Om Namah Shivah” mantra. You can also repeat the mantra mentally(mansik jaap) rather than loudly.
  • If you are not wearing the rudraksha place it in a small bowl and keep it in your prayer room. 
  • Always remember with dirty hands never touch the rudraksha bead.
  • After wearing the rudraksha don’t replace the bead with anyone as it absorbs the negative energies of that person.

Does Rudraksha Have Side Effects?

After doing the Pran Pratsitha every person can wear a rudraksha to gain health advantages, irrespective of religious belief, caste, age, or culture. When rudraksha beads are worn as per traditions and placed properly they attract positive strength & energy. Rudraksha protects a wearer from harmful negative energies. These rudraksha beads work as a type of protection against these negative energies like black magic.
